FUNDED BY: Apostolatus Maris, Art&Gallery Milan
DEVELOPED FOR: artway of thinking
When artway of thinking was invited to be part of The Seeds of Joseph Beuys, a collective exhibition at Art&Gallery in Milan incorporating several community-based public art projects, they used the opportunity to further research and disseminate the work investigating the world of the se labourers. Artway established a temporary agency inside the gallery for 30 days with the aim was to retrieve information about the services available to seafarers in all the ports of Italy. I carried out the primary research on Port Authorities, Maritime Agencies and local Seamen’s clubs, updated the public online and, in the gallery, through a wall and floor installation that was used to present the diverse forms of information, including images, drawings, instant notes etc. that gradually populated the space.
